The Glengarry Glen Ross Minute

Two guys chew over their favorite Mamet movie - one minute at a time.

Minute 37: HEY, HEY, HEY… It’s Fat Capitano Coming Your Way

September 13th, 2017

The impending Roma scene is like Christmas to Matt, which makes this minute nothing more than a sad, old man in a phone booth. Bill is perpetually a first day of school kid.  The Lemmon wetters get foiled this week. Matt and Bill both seem to love "as seen on TV" products. What is it that Mrs. Nyborg is out doing by herself so late at night? The boys discuss video game movies and their general ineffectiveness. Bill poignantly points out Shelly's tragic flaw. One shouldn't pretend to be in an office when calling from a highway. Dr. Encryption shows up to explain how spy stuff works. Nobody in NY has ever said "I'm going to Wisconsin." Bill brings a questionable game to the table and ushers the Fat Albert gang into the fold. Matt thinks Bill is turning into an old Mudfoot.
